In light of all conversation and the product at hand I've started seeing these "better mousetrap" power steering reservoirs (turner offers a "triple baffled" unit as well). I suppose my question was if the proper destructive engineering was done to examine the issue, rather than jumping in at the hypothesis that it just needs a solid aluminum bomb-proof reservoir. I would think if under normal condition (no cracks or failures of the designed unit) it allows fluid to escape that could be a designed sacrificial point in the assembly.

Would eliminating the sacrificial point under the right conditions lead to a failure of the next weakest point? My reasoning would be this being radial seals in the steering rack itself...
